Just a casual reminder that in 1861, 11 Senators and 3 Representatives were expelled from Congress for failing to recognize Lincoln’s election and supporting insurrection. — If we can expel George Santos, we can expel the insurrectionists.

With all we've learned & continue to learn, & for all the evils of that plan we might never know, these Congress members who were willing participants MUST be expelled, then prosecuted just as other ID'd insurrectionists have been. They betrayed their oath & country. For us to heal, they MUST go.

The problem is that you need 2/3rds to vote to expel, and more than a third of Congress is insurrectionist.

"The claim that 11 senators and three U.S. House members were expelled in 1861 for refusing to acknowledge Lincoln's win is PARTLY FALSE, based on our research." https://www.usatoday.com/s...

While this factoid arguably misattributes the reason for the departure of those representatives, it is still true that those members of Congress were expelled -- for supporting the Confederacy over the Union. Not recognizing Lincoln's victory could easily be inferred.

If you look at those expelled for supporting the Confederacy in 1861 AND 1862, there are 17 (and 1 was reversed).... I have seen this in multiple places but showing link to Wikipedia...

The sad state of our current Congress definitely negates that possibility. There is no way that you could find members of the Republican party willing to cast their vote for expulsion of a fellow Republican for insurrection. They are too terrified of Trump and his rabid MAGA cult.
